Danger reliably averted: cathodic protection for well casings
Most well casings for oil, natural gas and water are cemented in order to anchor the pipes in the earth and protect them. If the cementation of the casing contains chloride ions or defects, the cementation’s protective effect is lost and the casing is exposed to an acute corrosion risk. Cathodic protection (CP) is a reliable method of averting the significant risk that casings have of corroding. Steffel will assist you in setting up a CP installation. Our services range from calculating the protective current required and designing the system to installing and servicing the installation.
